I’m a multidisciplinary illustrator and graphic designer based in New York City. In December 2016 I graduated as the Valedictorian from Full Sail University’s Graphic Design program. Although my degree is in graphic design, I also have a background in traditional art, and my style is often influenced by a combination of the two.


Lately my focus has primarily been on creating black and white art that has an abstract, dynamic and graphic quality. However, I am a colorful person and enjoy working with vibrant and varied color palettes as well.


On a more personal note, I’m a positive, optimistic person who tries to see the best in all situations. My values include kindness, respect and self care—mental health is just as important as physical health. I love being out in nature where I can feel the sun and breathe in the fresh air. I find inspiration in introspection, listening to music, comic books, and horror movies.
